    TV runs at 24fps! Blu-ray movies at 23.98487457 fps!

    On big TVs, 30fps is fine; heck, even on a PC monitor 30fps is playable.

    How is this news? Pretty much every FPS game runs at 30 fps or less on consoles. COD games are the exception and to be able to achieve that they have to sacrifice a lot of stuff.

    As long as it doesn't drop below that, it'll be fine. As for multiplayer, I'm presuming there will be no interoperability between the platforms; ie: no PS3 vs 360 vs PC on the same server... so everyone will be in the same boat, so there won't be a problem.

    I'll be buying it on the PC anyway; I can't cope with FPS games on a console.

    What about the 360 - have they got 60fps @ 720p on that?

    The 360? Battlefield? With 60 FPS? Haha no.

    I don't even get why this is news either. This is like saying the PC gets mouse support.

    Hopefully this will give them the extra headroom they need to make sure it is a great game, without having to cut too many gameplay essential features so that it will work cross-platform.

    Not really sure why this is news either, TV's don't really need more then 30fps. So for consoles that's fine. Also it should be obvious that bigger better quality graphics games need more hardware. We know the consoles are now a little old so they are going to start struggling games shouldn't be designed to work on old hardware they should be designed for new hardware and drop whatever is needed to make them run on consoles.

    TV and films have motion blur "between" the frames. 24fps video with static frames looks nowhere near as smooth.

    Still, 30fps is playable, if not ideal for an FPS.

    That's what over the top motion blur, bloom and HDR are for! ;)

    At least they're sticking to 720p. I hate how the "HD Generation" is 540p half the time. 720p should be an absolute minimum.
